Two and a half inches on the long leg, as you likely can read. Made by Starrett. This is a printer’s tool, given to me in hopes, perhaps, that I’d be the third generation in the trade. Wonderful, precise, satin-feeling measuring device.
When your throat is feeling obstreperous, you’ll likely encounter one of these. Great for epoxy work, stirring those teensy cans of paint, and evoking the Pavlovian “AAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaah” response.
To change the blade of my radial arm saw, you must place a 5/16 allen wrench in the end of the shaft and a 1” straight wrench on the arbor nut. It is awkward to turn, and in fact is a reverse thread. This casket wrench just fits that allen socket and you can get the blade changed in nothing flat. Please don’t tell me you’re dying to get one of these, but if you are, it’s likely your local funeral home can furnish you one.
